Conflict is inevitable and has an important role to play as a catalyst for change and development on a personal, business and community level. What makes conflict a positive or negative experience is the way in which it is managed. I am committed to supporting individuals and organisations to
develop proactive and constructive approaches to conflict,
in order to minimise the risk and maximise the opportunities it presents.
Sam provides a range of conflict support services including conflict coaching,
mediation, facilitation, and advice about developing and improving workplace
and university conflict management systems. More information about mediation and conflict coaching.
